Martin Gammon, a former CEO of facilities management business OCS has been appointed as non-executive director at Bonasystems.
Gammon, who assumed the role on 1 January 2017 will play a ‘pivotal role’ in offering strategic advice to the provider of specialist floorcare cleaning and anti-slip products, services and consulting on its growth strategy and with its plans to secure larger contracts over the next three to five years.
Last year saw the company add a number of prestigious accounts to its clients portfolio including Mitchells & Butlers plc. In 2017, Bonasystems says it aims to increase its market share considerably in sectors such as hospitality and retail, but also gain a significant foothold in healthcare and education markets.
Speaking about the appointment, Steven Phillips, CEO of Bonasystems, said:
“To attract a non-executive director of such skill and experience is a testament to Bonasystems’ reputation and heralds an exciting new phase for the business. A business is only as good as the choices it makes and so it is vital to have the best people possible in crucial positions.
“I am therefore delighted that Martin is bringing his talent, vision, contacts and enormous experience from within the facilities management industry to our board, and this will be invaluable to our business going forward. Importantly, he has significant previous experience of helping businesses to scale, which is essential to us as we look to break through to the next level of our growth.”
Gammon held the position of chief executive officer, UK & Europe for OCS Group from 2009-2014. Prior to this, he set up, grew and then sold two companies over a 12-year period. He now runs his own consultancy business, MG Associates (UK) Ltd., and has a number of other directorships, including as non-executive director of Principle Cleaning Services.
